    Interested in the history of New Orleans and a reader of Michael Ondaatje's books, we read Coming Through Slaughter. Although a fictionalized account of a turn of the century jazz musician, facts are known and presented. The prose? In a word, poetic. The writing is beautiful and compelling while telling the story of a tortured young man living in the Storyville section of New Orleans - a small geographic area devoted to jazz and red lights (not Treme).
